Court Farm, Church Lane, Winterbourne, Gloucestershire, BS36 1SE
Winterbourne Medieval Barn was built in 1342, using the green timber construction methods. The original roof structure remains largely intact and is a fine example of raised-cruck construction. It is not a tithe barn, but is believed to be a unique survival of a very small number of medieval barns built by the lord of the manor for his own use. Visitors are invited to explore the barn and surrounding site (including St Michael's Church). Tours will be available. Children under 10 will be offered a quiz to do, either with their parents or on their own.
Uneven floor partially accessible for wheelchairs.
Adjacent to Winterbourne Medieval Barn is St Michael's Church, Monks Pools and Bradley Brook Nature Reserves.
The site is roughly 700m west of the village of Winterbourne and a similar distance east of the M4 motorway. The approach is from Church Lane, an unclassified road with an easterly junction with the High Street (B4058) in Winterbourne Village, and a junction to the south with Beacon Lane (B4057); the latter is the recommended route. OS Grid Reference ST 642808.
